Cataract Surgery in Central New Jersey
Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process. With time, cellular changes in the naturally clear lens cause the lens to become hazy and yellow. These changes interfere with sharp, detailed vision. Cataract surgery is performed to remove the hazy lens and replace it with an artificial lens (referred to as an intraocular lens, or IOL) to help the patient see clearly.
Dr. Hedaya and Dr. Ragam specialize in laser cataract surgery. Instead of using conventional handheld instruments, they harness the power of laser energy to carry out many important stages of the procedure. (Their preferred laser platform is the LenSx system.) This approach provides patients with the best vision possible with lowered risks. Once the natural lens has been removed, the doctors place a pre-selected IOL that restores sharp vision.
In addition to performing cataract surgery, Dr. Hedaya provides training on the subject of LenSx technology to his fellow surgeons. He is happy to be a mentor and a coach to his colleagues, sharing his understanding of the technological nuances of the LenSx platform and helping other surgeons optimize their results.
Dr. Hedaya, Dr. Ragam and the team at InVision Eye Care Specialists also offer laser vision correction and medical and surgical treatments for other eye diseases. For information about the practice’s available services, please call 800-724-3275 today.
